    (September 10, 2010) A zero-day flaw in Adobe Reader is being actively exploited, according to researchers.  The attack spreads through a maliciously crafted PDF file that accompanies email messages.  The attacks thus far appear to be targeted, as those who have received the malicious messages "work on common issues."  The flaw affects Adobe Reader versions 9.3.4 and earlier for Windows, Mac OS X and Unix.  The flaw affects Adobe Acrobat as well.  Until a patch is available, users are urged to use caution when opening PDF files. LANDesk will monitor this issue and will provide content to address the issue once a patch is made available. Please visit the following pages for more information:
